Salute Servicemen and Women at the Holidays

Operation Troop Appreciation is an organization Sparkt followers are already familiar with. As part of their holiday season efforts, OTA is hosting donation tables across the region.

Are you getting in the spirit of Sparkt's "25 Days of Volunteering" yet? This is where we're spending the month of December letting you know about some of the coolest local volunteer opportunities we've found, so you can give back a little of yourself this holiday season.

Operation Troop Appreciation is an organization Sparkt followers are already familiar with, thanks to a story we posted a couple of weeks ago. In addition to collecting household and personal items for veterans and active duty military at their facility, OTA is also hosting donation tables across the region throughout the month. They are asking for cleaning supplies, clothing, bedding, food and other general items.

They still urgently need volunteers to staff the table and collect donated items on Saturdays in December at The Mall at Robinson. They need two volunteers per shift on December 8, 15 and 22nd. The shifts are from 10 am to 1 and 1 to 4 pm.

To volunteer for one of the days and shifts, contact Carol Hamilton at 412-651-0269.
